Survival of the fittest
What morals and ethics
Did our ancestors test?
How did evolution
Make us one of the best?
Nature and nurture;
They knew what it meant:
We'll evolve further into the future.
But be warned of downfalls on occasion:
A reckless reaction
A spark of destruction
Might eventually be triggered
When human nature
Is more sure of its environment
than it is with itself.
Be warned. This is how world wars began.
I move in the same pace as the river.
I flow along with it as I keep a shiver;
Ignoring all the rocks that come my way,
so never will I be in one place to stay.
You struggle against the fast moving water.
You flow against it with a sturdy little quiver;
Using the rocks as so to keep you at bay,
then breathe a sigh of contentment and stay.
Unsure of control,
Her feelings soon burst
And she had kept it in;
Similar to that of water
That is waterproof
She does find it uncomfortable
In warfare they met
The importance of mercy
i'm just a conflation
of swollen lips
and drunken midnights
A busy, coffee-smelling Sunday morning
With noisy banters while cooking and dining
Natural gatherings with our parents
A time to fix the little cracks and bents
But alas, my father is under the soil
While mother uses her time to toil
And I am left in my own devices
Do try to imagine how everyday is
And oh, please try to remember albeit
I am not a sad child at all, at least not yet
For I always reason, not in deceit,
That my family isn't broken, just incomplete
